Steve Pulaski's rating of the film 20th Century Women

"Mom, I'm not all men," fifteen-year-old Jamie says in a typical teenage voice. "Well," his mother Dorothea responds, "yes and no." 20th Century Women is a well put-together film regarding the influences of three females in the adolescent life of a young boy. While a bit too frothy and nostalgic at times, the film's heart is constantly in the right place and I won't even begin to argue with this marvelous ensemble.
